jI)St year tu the public school rc
.0lt wns rampant nnd the authority
of the principal was set nt defiance
by the older nml Ijigger boys, who
assaulted Prof. Day. defied his
mandate nnd htid things their 'own
way. because he was not muscular
enough to enforce otder and dis
cipline, nnd the result wns n go-as-
oU.plcasil rule, which wns nKhnmc
jiul a disgrace to Hint seat of learn
ing winch the tnxpayeis Imd gone
down into their pockets to endow.
At this time n change hns come
over the scene nnd now nt the head
of the school is not only n brainy
nun, -but n u,nn of muscle nnd de
termined action, nnd he has begun
at the very root of the evil, nnd if
his hands nre upheld, nnd they un
doubtedly will he, he will have n

Dennett, sou of W. S.
Bennett, one of the school tttistees
slid mayor of this city, refused to
srudy the lesson assigned him by
Professor Hriggs. The professor
insisted on his devoting his atten
tion to thnt particular study and
the young man stubbornly refused
to do so, While the professor had
Ills time taken up with another
class this rebellious pupil sat with
foMed arms and his gnze riveted on
,tbe ceiling hi jopcji mutiny. When
Mr. Hriggs was disengaged and no
ticed the stubborn actions of the
young man he was quick to act,
and in the spirited evolutions that
jinniedialcly took place the pro
fessor demonstrated to his refractory
pupil that he wns master of the
schoolroom, in which oint of dif
ference tlie pupil reluctantly ucqtii
ess'e'd, The lftttc fracas wns re
ported to the board of trustees,!
which body wns called together in
the evening, the affair gone over in
detail and the professor commended
and exonerated for his action. Af
fairs of this kind in our public
school arc not pleasant to chronicle,
and it is earnestly to be hoped that
the boys who think the know
will see the folly of their way, nud
in the future follow ' the direction
and counsel of the man who does
know. Professor Hriggs when en
tering on his duties gave out that
he intended to govern the school on
the lines of the golden rule; but in
this instance he had to reverse the
rule and do the boy or the boy
would have done him. So far the
concensus of opinion in towif is
that lie is the right man in the right
"The members of the Christian
church and the minister of Hint
house of worslijp wire much
annoyed nt the misbehavior- of a
number; of girls nud boys who at
tended the services Inst Sunday
evening, and to mnke, matters more
serious some other bad boys had
placed a lot of bottles on the steps
of the north entrance in such
position that a person coming out
would step on them and they would
roll from under his feet and cause
a fall down the long steps. It so
happened that the bottles were dis
covered before anyone was hurt,
tut it is a despicable trick, nnd the
boys that done it, if caught, ought
to be flogged. The matter of these
young people disturbing the meet
ings has occurred qttite frequently,
and if it is not stopped and better
behavior maintained in the future
the minister will take down the
names of the disturbers and notify
